How to Stay Safe from the Coronavirus
If you are already in China and need to take a train, what precautions can be taken to protect you against the new conoravirus?
While on the train or in the train station, wearing a mask properly can reduce the risk of infection. A specialized mask, also known as an N95 respirator, offers more effective protection against the new coronavirus. A regular surgical face mask is also acceptable if an N95 respirator is not available.
Wash your hands frequently with soap/hand sanitizer and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the restroom or touching an elevator rail or buttons.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth before washing your hands. This is because the new coronavirus can transfer to you from your hands after touching surfaces that are contaminated with the virus.
